So I decided to try this fly spray brand, just out of curiosity. I like my homemade one but the goats don't like the smell of it, they try and rub it off and just get so mad. I thought they just didn't like getting fly sprayed, but then when I got a better smelling one they didn't seem to mind it, in fact -- they RUN to me to get sprayed. Like "ooooh mama THAT'S the spot" or "Yeah yeah the flies like to bite me here, put it here!" :eek:ohlala::eek:ohlala:

Cause when I normally try and put it on them it's "buh bye, NOT TODAY MWAHAHAHAHAHA" :goatrun::rungoat:

So anyway, I tried out this fly spray that's all natural, and it surprisingly works better than any fly spray I've ever tried. And like I said, it smells SO good. It's an oddly simple formula, just castor oil, sesame oil, lemongrass oil, and cinnamon oil for the active ingredients. I think the oil base may be what makes it last longer, because it stays on them for a while, but it's NOT GREASY like some others can be. Anyway, it comes in both a spray and in wipes, mine like the spray and like to have it brushed on them, but the wipes are really convenient for a goat that's afraid of the spray bottle (my bottle-fearing horse prefers the wipes, but we've worked through his fear now).

How often do you reapply it?

I would consider it water based though not oil based, 93% water.
Yeah I would agree, but I don't see many fly sprays with added oil so that's why I noted it.

Actually once a day application, it seems to last and protect a whole day (and night).
